Simon Cowell is helping out close a dog meat shop in South Korea and has saved hundreds of innocent pups from getting slaughtered. The 58-year-old America’s Got Talent judge has vowed to donate £25,000 (around $32,640) to Humane Society International (HSI), which is a charitable trust that helps resolve animal abuse all over the world.
HSI shared about Simon’s donation on Twitter where they wrote that his money will save over 200 dogs and puppies from a South Korean meat farm that breeds the animals for human consumption. The charitable trust will go there next week and pick up the animals, and then send out the dogs to countries such as United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Netherlands, etc. for adoption and recovery.
